I danced on a Friday when the world turned black
It’s hard to dance with the devil on your back
They buried my body, they thought I was gone
But I am the dance, and the dance goes on

Dance, dance, wherever you may be
I am the lord of the dance, said he
And I lead you all, wherever you may be
And I lead you all in the dance, said he

They cut me down and I leapt up high
I am the life that will never, never die
I’ll live in you if you’ll live in me
I am the Lord of the dance, said he

Dance, dance, wherever you may be
I am the lord of the dance, said he
And I lead you all, wherever you may be
And I lead you all in the dance, said he

I think we need to reclaim the power of the resurrection of Jesus as more than a historical event, or even an historical event with implications for the future.

It is in the now that I find myself deeply moved by the power of Jesus’ victory over death.  Yes, it is dark at times.  Yes, the suffering and wrongdoing seems everywhere, hopeless, black.  But it doesn’t have to be that way anymore.

Jesus is with us…new life begins now.
